Use Library Search to find books owned by Temple University Libraries. You can search by author, title, subject, or keyword.
Use the filters to the left of your search results to limit results by availability (at the library or online), publication date, topic, era, genre, and more.
Once you find a book that seems useful, check the list of Subject links in the item's record. Try these links to find additional books on the same topic. For example, Slavery — History — 20th century.
To find books that may be primary sources, search on a person's name but change "All Fields" to "Author" from the Advanced Search options.
